Wizz Air will allocate a new aircraft to the Bucharest base and increase the number of flights on existing routes
In a conference held in Bucharest, Wizz Air announced that it will allocate a new aircraft to the Bucharest base and increase the number of flights on existing routes. From 4 July, the 7 aircraft will join the base at the Otopeni airport and will be a Airbus A320 equipped with Sharklet, the system for the tip of the fuel saving wings.
The new aircraft will operate 19 additional weekly flights on existing routes. With 12 aircraft allocated to 4 Romanian bases, Wizz Air estimates to carry over 3.3 millions of passengers this year, out of which over 1.8 millions of them being transported only from Henri Coanda International Airport.
By allocating a new Airbus A320 aircraft in Bucharest, Wizz Air will create more jobs and will carry additional 300.000 passengers. Let us not forget that Wizz Air will inaugurate new routes from Bucharest to Alghero, Geneva, Girona, Oslo, Tel Aviv and Dubai, but will also increase the number of flights on existing routes.
Wizz Air also announced that the investment made at the Romanian bases amounts to almost 1 billion dollars. The amount is not invested in Romania but in the 12 aircraft allocated to local bases plus employees.
I end with a comment left by Ioana: "If she doesn't change her mind, Wizz Air will grow!"
We still have no news about the route Kiev - Bucharest.
